Rue Scribe – For the Record

For the Record

Rue Scribe is the small literature journal of Underwood Press LLC.

“Think Small.”

It was the advertising slogan for the Volkswagon Beetle developed by the  Doyle Dane Bernbach agency in 1959.  Since then, it has been called the single best advertising campaign of the 20th Century. We think it fits us perfectly.

We think small as in Small Literature – small but powerful.

Get rid of any fluff. Distill it down to its essence and then distill it again.

Get to the point.  Get to the point, now.

Featuring a well packed and constantly updated supply of powerful short fiction and poetry, Rue Scribe also features For the Record; a new short piece of fiction by J H Martin, which you can read here.

The Blotter – 势如破竹

DSC01776-2

势如破竹

The Blotter Magazine exists to nurture underground, outsider literature and art and to provide it to a wide audience.

We believe that the economic viability of good art and writing should not interfere with its life, liberty, or happiness; and we deliberately seek to avoid the pretension and “overintellectualism” for which the world of literature and art has become known.

In May, 2003, the magazine began distributing free at selected newsstands in the North Carolina Triangle area. Since then, our free distribution has expanded to other fine cities in the Southeast.

The material we publish is intelligent but we are anti-intellectual. We know that there is many a publication read only by its contributors and the occasional librarian. Our readers are an eclectic bunch, and our contributors run the gamut: precocious high-school kids, collegiate philosophers, working-class dogs surreptitiously typing during lunch, professional writers and artists, slackers, bartenders, and doctors, from all over the United States and Europe.

The November 2015 Issue of The Blotter is out now, featuring work by Annie Land, Jim Harrington, Shannon Brady, John Grey, Phil Juliano, The Dream Journal, and the short story, ‘势如破竹‘ by J H Martin.

If you are not in the North Carolina area, you can download a free PDF copy here.
